Victory at the New York Court of Appeals in favor of the Fourth Amendment, safeguarding citizens from unreasonable searches and seizures. This means that the police cannot pull someone over without probable cause. Equitable Cities CEO/Founder, Charles T. Brown, as a subject matter expert in arrested mobility collaborated with the New York Civil Liberties Union and other advocates to develop compelling amicus briefs, building a robust case following the Lance Rodriguez incident in 2014. He was arrested by police officers after riding his bike in a Queens NY neighborhood. The officers claimed they spotted something ‘bulky’ in his pants. The object indeed turned out to be a gun, which led to Rodriguez’s eventual conviction. This decision recognizes that everyone traveling on New York’s roads deserves to have their Fourth Amendment rights protected.
